  • Watering

    Keep the soil slightly moist. From the spring and all summer long, water abundantly but wait for the topsoil to dry out between watering spells, especially if you’re growing pittosporum in a pot. Reduce watering in winter. Always remember that the pittosporum plant tolerates drought better than excessive irrigation, so avoid overwatering.

  • Best Growing Conditions

    If your soil is heavy, dig a hole large enough (one meter in all directions) and mix 1/3 coarse sand, 1/3 compost and slow-release fertilizer in it. For planting in a pot, using a good quality light potting mix is optimal. For a hedge, grow medium-sized varieties and space them about 1 m apart. Carefully take out the plant from the pot without damaging the roots. Remove some soil around rootball gently and plant it at the same depth as it was grown previously. Water the plant thoroughly and regularly until it establishes.
